Hand Washing Advice
It is essential that everyone washes their hands more often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand washing with soap employs mechanical action that loosens bacteria and viruses from the skin, rinsing them into the drain. Drying hands afterwards makes the skin less hospitable to the virus. Hand sanitiser can be effective if soap is not available or the situation makes using soap less feasible (i.e. when outside) but using hand sanitiser provides none of the virus-destroying friction that rubbing your hands together and rinsing with water provides.

Government Advice on Face Coverings
Face coverings are instead largely intended to protect others, not the wearer, against the spread of infection because they cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of virus that causes coronavirus infection (COVID-19).
Face coverings need to be worn inside school by parents and visitors who do not regularly work in school. Staff do not need to wear face coverings although this may be reviewed if there is a rise on cases at school. Children do not need to wear face coverings.
Binley Woods Primary School
Please refer to the school's updated risk assessment above
Parents are required to wear face coverings when inside the school building unless they are exempt.
Meetings with parents will take place via Teams or Zoom to reduce risk of transmission when it is appropriate.
Large events with parents are not able to take place currently. These include assemblies, productions and Christmas events. This will be reviewed inline with local authority and Public Health advice.
